Who informed you of that? Cant really remember what the Nexen site said, but from memory it seemed they were certainly using it for much more than grinders. Might not be strong enough for a big lathe though.

Ignore my last statement :-[, I got my wires crossed, ive so much going on right now, i mixed things up, sorry :-[.
However like you say hood, it dosent look strong enough for a big lathe.
